Dwyane Wade said he knew it was coming.

The day before Lebron James' decision to leave Miami, Dwyane Wade shared a long flight with Lebron.

"I probably knew then... without him telling me," said Wade.  "You can tell where someone's heart is, you know what they're thinking. And I kind of knew at that moment."

Wade said he and James had been friends for 11 years, and he wishes James nothing but the best moving forward.

"As his friend, I'm just supportive," said Wade. "As crazy as that might sound, I'm supportive of my friend doing what makes them happy."

Wade and James won two NBA Championships together in Miami. Wade said he thinks the Heat Front Office has done a great job of moving on from Lebron, and signing the players neccessary to be a contender in next year's title race.
